Pathways to be mowed at Belle Park to encourage park usage
June 20, 2019 -
Crews will soon be at Belle Park to improve the park user experience by mowing approximately one kilometre of grass paths in the park's interior. The mowing is a low-impact approach to improving the 80-acre waterfront park and allow for more active use of the park.
"This initiative is expected to allow park users an improved way to use the site and enjoy its natural summer beauty," says Neal Unsworth, manager, parks development.
The Belle Park Master Plan, currently in development, suggests a phased approach to long-term improvements on the 80-acre site, which include increased areas for naturalization and options for recreational activities near the clubhouse and Montreal Street. The mown pathways will follow a layout similar to the long-term proposed pathways in the master plan.
Located at 731 Montreal St., Belle Park is open dawn to dusk and is accessible by Kingston Transit and the urban K&P Trail. Learn more about the park at www.CityofKingston.ca/Facilities.
